Myrmecridiales Crous, Persoonia 34: 219 (2015)
Index Fungorum Number: IF 812460
Myrmecridiales was established to accommodate Myrmecridium which was previously placed in Hypocreomycetidae, genera incertae sedis (Crous et al. 2015, Maharachchikumbura et al. 2016b). Another genus Neomyrmecridium was later included in the order in a strongly supported clade with Myrmecridium (Crous et al. 2018) and this is confirmed in this study. The divergence time for Myrmecridiales is estimated as 113 MYA (Fig. 2). Currently there are two families and three genera in this order.
